Are you sick of your dining room table being cluttered with papers? A designated schoolwork space benefits the parents as well as the children. It can turn a place of homework struggles into a happy homework haven. If possible, create your space in a place where your kids already gravitate to. Go with the flow and think long term. You'll want a space you can update as your children grow older and study needs change. A monotone environment is less likely to encourage creativity and stimulate the thinking process. Be creative & use color!

Depending on the age of your child, having a place for parents to sit can also be important.

Keep the clutter to a minimum! There may need to be plenty of supplies for your student to access. Help them learn to stay organized. There should be a place for everything and after the homework session everything should go back in its place.

Having furniture to fit your child’s size is important. This adjustable height desk and chair are just the ticket for growing kids!

What a great set up for multiple children!

Obviously, not all students are young children. So what about teens and college students? Here are some wonderful ideas for these folks.

What teen wouldn’t dig this set up? Notice the flexible lighting, great storage, and ample work space!

Proper lighting is essential to any work space. Keep lighting options flexible and be sure to provide task lighting. Any of these lights would do the trick!

Comfortable and adjustable seating is also important. I LOVE the Herman Miller office chairs!

If a built-in desk is not an option for you check out these movable pieces!

Having a specific place where you feel comfortable, can focus, and get to work is important for any student. Where do you or your children do homework?
